Yes, funny how there's no 912 anymore. So the more recent adds down in the range from the iconic 911 that are are named (ie Boxter, Cayman) - and the 911 goes on & on unsullied as the 911 (they would never, say, make the mistake now of making a '922').

Flip this on its head and maybe over time the punters will think of the M3 as a lower-rent M4 <ugh>
